Rumor was that the 3.0L was originally planned for use in a Cadillac when diesels were on the rise in passenger cars. We all know what happened there.

That's supposedly the first generation of the V6 that Ram uses. Not a direct linage to the straight 6 that GM is using.

Really. I thought it was the inline 6. But the whole VM/GM diesel engine relationship is confusing to me. The more I learn the less I know about it.

I believe the 2.8 in the colorado/canyon is derived from a VM design. Afaik, the 3.0 is a clean sheet design and all GM.
